The Speech and Language Therapy Team will support your child if they have speech, language or communication needs and/or difficulties with eating or drinking (including those who stammer). It also offers training and support for parents.
Children are seen in their home, early years settings and children’s centres. When your child transfers to school the speech and language therapists will work closely with the school staff to identify targets and activities to develop your child’s language and communication skills at school.
The level of support and frequency of visits may change as your child moves through school and their needs change. Stammering and Feeding Clinics are run from Julia Engwell Health Centre (Dagenham) and the Child and Family Centre (Barking).
This service is for children and young people under 19 years old and is an open referral service.
